this new design has yet to receive a proper name yet but i needed a new project and decided that a new modular design that might also interest the guys i fly with.. she uses a lockup plate to control the arm layout ( SX TX hybrid and squish
) and keep it a true one bolt arm system. so far this setup seems to work really well with the initial issues been my roll cage, which should be sorted in the second version. testing and tuning has produced a solid tune and as expected a nice clean airframe with a low noise floor.. the sandwich plate thicknesses and cut direction helping keep the airframe on target noise and performance wise. with a few things to tidy up moving to the next version so far this project is showing loads of potential, can't wait to put it round a track

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
